Babies Are Being Seriously Injured in Car Seats Used Outside the Car According to New Ohio Study


Nine thousand (9000) babies are seen in emergency rooms every year in this country because they are injured in car seat-injuries outside the car, according to a new study published today in Pediatrics. The good news is that the new study was low in fatalities, with most infants surviving their trip to the E.R.

Most of these accidents occur when the baby is kept inside the car seat, and the car seat is taken out of the car and set someplace, on a table, counter, etc.

The lesson to be learned: don't trust the car seat to keep your baby safe.
